Abstract:

This thesis is the first in a series that is attempting to discover the mechanism by which the fracture toughness J sub 1C, of HY-series steel decreases with increasing prestrain at room temperature. This decrease J sub 1C is a function of yield strength and plane strain fracture strain. However, this reduction in J sub 1C is shown to be caused by a reduction in the plane strain fracture strain. Fractographic examinations have verified this reduction in the fracture strain and also have shown that regions of very low ductility exist due to alloy segregation that is present in bands. The mechanism for the degradation in the toughness is believed to be such that stress relieving following prestraining would restore the toughness. Author
